Skullcracker & Runed Grimling on Al Kabor

There are two guards at the first gate headed toward the portal for inner AC, but not far from zone in. The two grimling guards that stand on either side of this door can drop shard. I have personally seen them drop off 'a runed grimling' and a 'grimling skullcracker'. This may be different on other servers, but on the Mac server, you can get shards there.
How to get to Inner Acrylia

I was having a bit of trouble finding the way to IA, so I thought I would post this after I had figured it out. First, you need to find the "Blood Room" which is marked on my map as "a grimling bloodpriest." It is the southernmost room in the zone. There is a large "blood pool" at one end of the room surrounded by grimlings. On the opposite wall - across from the pool - you will see a statue on a platform. This is NOT the statue that takes you too IA. The statue you are looking for is in the room to the right (West) of the Blood Room. Location of the statue is -700, +150.

If you find yourself in the blood pool - I did this by trying to get across to that statue on the platform - there is no way to climb out. Or if someone knows a way to climb out please post a response here. I could not find a way. However, there is a red gem at the bottom of the pool and clicking on this gem will take you back to Grimling Forest at the zone-in to AC.

Hope this helps.

Got lucky tonight. Once I was inside Inner AC, I went to the left. Attacked the first mob I saw there. In the process of killing it I got one add, then another, then another. But after just these 4 kills I had my shard. =)

To answer a question I had myself, you don't need a key to use the statue. Also, do NOT train your way over to the statue.. when you teleport over the stuff following you comes too. Found this out the hard way. :)
just under an hour for me... not too bad.

Indeed got one off a sanctum bloodguard. Was in AC helping a beastlord friend get acrylia; she led us to a jail cell area with a couple of Animist NPCs, and in about 45 min the first one dropped.

My Pally friend and I farmed thease guys forever but finaly we got our shards. You have to move through the zone and touch on some statue to take you to the back of the zone. All mobs here were db to a 65, most were casters, healers, not really a prob with 66 Pally and 65 Druid. The cool thing about this zone is lots of plat to be made. The weapons drop like rain and there worth between 2 and 6 plat each, plus you get lots of Acrilya(sp) drops that sell well in the bazaar as is, or you can turn them into Acrylia studs I think is is, with smithing and they sell even better and for a lot more. I liked getting this shard I made several thousand plat in the process. Good luck

Just got mine... there were a couple of guys farming acrylia in IC and they had 2 rotting, so I just invised in and picked it up. AC is a great place for cash so this shouldn't be too uncommon.

hi, 62 bst here, tried to solo my shard.. all was going good until i saw 2 lings at a door.. and since i was single pulling the whole zone, i pulled the bloodguard, but the deathpriest added, so im guessing IA is different than OA on pulls.. can u 65s pull them w.o get adds?
# Mar 31 2004 at 1:51 AM Rating: Decent
63 BST here. What are you using to pull? If your using your slow as most beastlords generally do then it is possible to single pull some mobs but others have a "little zone" around them that anything near them and in this "little zone" will also aggro. Advice to pulling effective singles: Wait untill the mob you want is either alone or far enough away from others so that this rule doesn't come into effect. Alternatively as a 62 BST you could split tank, pet on one and you on other. Just make sure you buff your pet first =)

Good luck.

Dropped from one of the sanctums in the place Baracca said to go. Five kills for it.

Anyone know what these "etched acrylia runes" are for?

The Etched acrylia runes are the grimling's money. They sell to merchants for 2-6pp each and each grimling drops 3-4ish

With the zone change I was discouraged about doing this part. Just got mine tonight so here's what I learned.

Follow barracca or whatever instruction - come in to the zone go right towards ring event thing - but take a turn before then go through that gate where evidently it used to drop - go in and left itu past undead skeletons on stairs then invis to that huge room with all the dudes standing on the edge and go right and in a door click on statue to port in - I just started killing right there took about 30 minutes and it dropped off the bloodguard type mobs not the corpsemasters or priest dudes. Hope this helps.

I followed Baracca's info and got lost....that first left brought us to a small room with no statue. After wandering, we took a right turn in the lava room, remaining directions were right on target and we got our VT keys bits! :)

Had one drop here today from sanctum bloodguard in inner cave by Archmage Ring.

This zone was revamped and all mobs seem to have had their names nerfed.

Seriously - I've been trying to get VT shard from here. Started working on it yesterday. If anyone has new info on what mob now drops shard and it's location then please post it.

Currently I'm pulling stuff to the gate area to kill. Pulling mobs that are past the gate as well as mobs back towards zone. The only thing I have come across as of yet was "a grimling blodmage" conned light blue at level 65 and dropped some descent gloves for twinking and some book.
I forget name of gloves but stats are something like:
Ac 16 +5str +5sta +5dex +5agi +25hp +25mana

Can't remember if gloves had resists or not, but I think that is what stats were.

Shards for VT are now fairly Common in Inner Acrylia, after gate, stay left past skeles, into lava room, hang a left go through door, up the stairs, click the statue to zone warp to IA, Sanctum Bloodguards etc..etc... drop shards, have gotten up to 4 in one soloing session.
Very easy to attain this shard now.

I got mine and 2 others in my group got theirs in under 30 mins at this camp :-)

I went into Inner Acylia, by clicking the statue in the High Priest room. I duo'd with a monk killing Sanctum Bloodguards, Sanctum Deathpriests, and Sanctum Corpsemasters... about 50 mobs total and never saw a shard.

From the above post I think I may have clicked the wrong statue?

You have to click the stutue and goto the lower cavens now. I don't know much more than that. I did 24 hours the old way /shrug. Still no shard , and now I have to figure out the new camp as well. I think the "yard trash" in lower drops the shard though
Also drops off "a runed grimling"

I got the shard in the same spot the grimling skullcrackers spawn (first gate), but off "a runed grimling".
